VIC SAIER BREAKS HIS LEG
MAY SE dUT FOR SEASON
The Ibss of several ball games by
the Cubs is not 'even an item com
pared with the loss of Vic Saier, vet
first sacker. He will probably be out
of the game for the se"as3n with the
broken ankle which he sustained in
a dash for the home plate timing the
only batting ' rally staged by the

first game to the Cards because said
Cards put up a bit better game.

is to plug all the harder, in spite of
the initial sack blow.
